Segment 1 (00:00) Todd brings up the ridiculousness of asking for strength in persecution before we actually need it. He uses a sermon from Voddie Baucham to explain how our focus needs to be on things above rather than ourselves when it comes to persecution.

Segment 2 (09:02) Todd and Voddie explain how the focus of God is not to get us out of our particular circumstance, but rather to help us to respond rightly in our circumstance. They also discuss communion in suffering as well as the rewards. Of suffering for the Gospel.
